it'd b interesting if you "tricked" your training partner.
say the previous week he did 225 for 12, and this week he is going to hit that again before moving up.
wonder what would happen if you snuck on 2x2.5s on each side without him knowning, I'd think chances are he would still get 230 for 12 since in his mind, he already did 225 for 12 last week and he has no idea you just snuck on 5 lbs.
it has alwasy made me curious if instead of the 45lb plates, gyms had 50lb plates. wouldn't everyone be 10lbs stronger on bench? we tend to just throw on the 45s for "convenience". if 50s were convenience, I think we'd all be a bit stronger.
what if our numbering system was hexadecimal instead of decimal?
we'd count 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c,d,e,f
meaning we'd have 16 iterations for the base of our numbering system. Maybe we'd be doing sets of 16 for "convenience". after all, so many people do sets of 10 because it's the base of our number system.
